    Ok, "one of those guys".

    I gladly invite you to share "what you think", I enjoy good conversation and debate. What I don't care for is people trying to tell me how I should think. That's not your place. That's not "alright" I hope you understand the distinction because some people still don't.

    When you're telling me "There's reason for optimism. But not the degree of optimism you seem to be conveying" - your exact words above - that's exactly what you're doing. Maybe it was unintentional, but that was the message conveyed.

    We're all good going forward. As I said, your comment was likely unintentional and I always enjoy good conversation and debate.

    I don't want to belabor the point, particularly b/c I think you've otherwise met me halfway and we're good. But for the record, I was stating what I think when I wrote "there's reason for optimism but not the degree of optimism you seem to be conveying." You were/are not told to not offer an opposing perspective (... apologies for the double negative, but it seems to better convey the point). Now, I suppose I could have added the words, "in my opinion" just to be clear, but I do already do that with some regularity in my posts, and I'd like to not have to end every thought posted with that phrase if I could just be afforded that inherent assumption. I'm just not "one of those guys" who feels it important to claim omniscience, but rather am content with my human-ness--though still attempting to offer, and making no apologies for offering, substantive opinion that's relatively well thought-out.

    I'm fine with hearing from you about what you think about the subject at hand, whatever that may be. What I take offense to is you telling me what you think of what I think or the validity of my opinion. There's where people cross a line and where they obviously don't see it.

    What you could have said is that you didn't share my level of optimism or were less optimistic than I was. I would've been fine with that. I don't expect people to feel exactly the way that I do one way or another, that's unrealistic. But in your words, that's what you did. 'Reason for optimism, but not to my degree' as if someone appointed you the judge of such things and my position was somehow 'wrong'.

    I hope this clears things up for you and that we're good going forward.

    Can you imagine that? And Cooper turning things around here? And Jaylon Smith being the player he was at Norte Dame?

    They'd really have something to 'hate' then!

    The Cooper signing is a great example of option theory. Assuming he is with the team next year, the Cowboys have numerous options to high-grade the RT position and (seamlessly) back-filling for Leary if he is not resigned.

    Pretty simple really, you cannot spend those kind of resources on one group.
